From Letters, Substantially as Published


In a recent issue of the Bridgeport Times-Star there appeared an editorial paragraph referring in a not unkindly way to Christian Science. However, inasmuch as the reference may leave a false impression among some readers, will you kindly print this letter?

The Christian Scientist does not merely "believe he isn't sick." He understands that all real causation is in God, Spirit, divine Mind, not in matter, not in the physical body. He understands that man is the image and likeness of God, and that because God is perfect, man is perfect. Mere belief is not a healing factor in the demonstration of Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 476, 477): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick."
